Extracted and highlighted evidence levels. Medicine eBook is accessible on a variety of devices.For FFP, the following approximation can be applied: 10 mL/kg will reduce an INR of 4.2a€“2.4, an INR of 3.0a€“2.1 or an INR of 2.4a€“1.8; reducing an INR of 4.2a€“ 1.4 would therefore require 40 mL/kg.260 Treatment must be combined with vitamin K1 (1a€“2 ... However, PCC seems to reverse anticoagulation faster than FFP.
